The Photographic Angle (TPA) is a charitable organisation set up to promote the education of the public in the art and science of photography. We stage exhibitions that are free to enter and that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into photographic galleries. Exhibitions comprise large scale photographs together with technical data, information about the photographic theme, boards containing inspirational quotes and boards containing hints and tips on photography. Professional, student and amateur photographers submit their work for possible inclusion in one of our travelling exhibitions, which are curated by our Head of Design. The work that we do offers the public a chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, a profession, or simply a pastime.

Let there be Light in the Lens!

A very popular theme, our ‘Light in the Lens’ is back on tour this quarter!

Starting in Benchmark House, Weybridge from 1st to 5th May, open each day from 10am to 3pm.

Photographers use light to bring out the character in portraits, the grain and texture in surfaces and to lead the eye over an image.

They pick a particular moment in time to grasp the ever-changing light and capture a unique visual record.

Competition - Seascape Moods

In this competition, we are looking for your take on seascapes. Whether this is from below, above, or from your favourite look out. Perhaps you are a fisherman, or a surfer, and are capturing the sea while you and the water are truly as one. Maybe you have a favourite walk, an iconic view, or a spot where the sun sets daily. Or you could even present a documentary theme, showing the effect of plastic waste on the sea and those who call it their home.

Whatever your connection to the sea, and how you view it, we want to see this. We’re looking for all the faces of the ocean and how this is viewed by the people who share it.

See the Competitions page for more details

Competition closes at midnight (GMT) on 30th April 2019

Coming to a venue near you!

We are almost at the end of our 1st quarter for 2019.

We have some fabulous exhibitions planned for our next quarter which will be beginning in April.

This will kick off with images of earth, fire, water and air – yes, The 4 Elements will be making their way around Milton Keynes, Newcastle and Feltham.

One of the most important aspects of photography, Light and how to take stunning images using it in different ways is the message behind our theme, ‘Light in the Lens’ which will be touring Manchester, Weybridge, Reading and London.

Finally, for images that have been chosen because they tell the narrative of a particular person or place or group, come along to see ‘Our Stories’ exhibitions, in Reading, Maidenhead and London.

We look forward to seeing you at the venue nearest you!

Our submission process has changed

Anyone who has submitted work to be included in one of our catalogues in the past, would have done this via a submissions page link. However, due to an overwhelming and fantastic response to our competitions, TPA have decided to curate its catalogues from the best of our competition entrants. The quality of work submitted to competitions over the years has been outstanding hence the decision to merge the two.

In short, anyone interested in having their work displayed at our venues should enter our competitions instead. The favourites will be contacted in due course throughout the year as and when a new catalogue print is scheduled. Please view our competitions page for further details.

All Exhibitions are free to enter!

This is just a little reminder that all of our photography exhibitions are free to have a look around. We welcome group visits from schools, colleges and universities and will do whatever we can, to ensure that students gain the most from their experience. Please email or give us a call on 0800 028 7338 to discuss this further.
